Black Forest, Colorado is unique. A collection of rich and poor, young and old, eccentric and collected, our community is strong. We are proud to be a part of this community. And we want to give back to the ones who have welcomed us into their home.
From hosting community meetings to supplying coffee for Black Forest Together events to showcasing artwork from Edith Wolford Elementary students, we strive to be an indespensible resource amongst the trees.
The Black Forest Fire of 2013 exemplified how vital a community gathering place is. We hosted numerous events to help the community (including a Latte Art Throwdown fundraiser that brought baristas from up and down the Front Range to our shop), we shed tears with long-time regulars who lost everything, helped connect people with resources to help them through the rebuild process, beamed with pride when the architectural drawings appeared, and just stayed a strong supporter of everything Black Forest. We were honored when El Paso County presented us with an award for everything we had done through the fire and the months of recovery. To us, watching our regular guests talk about moving back into their homes was award enough. Words cannot express how grateful we are to be able to say:
Black Forest's Community Gathering Place
Thank you, Black Forest, for allowing us to be a part of your community.
